Track marks

Most of our tracks have boring names - usually a yard designation and track number; e.g., RJ01, D12, NC17, etc. Sometimes though, if the track is the only one at a siding for instance, they will forego the numeric designation for something more descriptive. I was updating one of my tables when I noticed this entry for a departure track at Norma Junction, ND (SPLC 513147 for any of you railway geeks out there):

NORMA JCT DEPT TRK --- FNORD

The naming is pure chance, of course, but it was still enough to trigger a minor nerdgasm.
